Sailboat data.com tends to be a useful source for basic model data.  The Herreshoff America is here:

https://sailboatdata.com/sailboat/herreshoff-america

It does not include clearance information. 

Does anyone have this data to help?

Miscellaneous Herreshoff Topics / bridge clearance for a HA-18
« Last post by brokenotbroken on December 08, 2018, 05:22:24 PM »
Can anyone tell me the height from the waterline to the top of the mast when the gaff isn't raised for a HA-18? I have a low clearance bridge I would like to make it under without lowering the entire mast and am wondering if the HA18 would fit if I simply lowered the gaff. Thanks!

Herreshoff Boats For Sale / Re: NY 40 in Hawaii

Hi Rob,

The boat is for sale on yacht world and has been for about two years. 

The hull is sound, having been rebuilt by Eric Ashford of Port Townsend.  Eric does solid work.  I recall the planks may be edge-glued rather than caulked.  If you look closely at the photo posted on the Forum in October the hull is fairly smooth.  I knew Eric in the 90's and would run into him from time to time in the 2000's.  Neither the owner nor restorer were/are permanent residents and so the work on the Wizard would start and stop. 

The major challenge may be transporting the vessel from Hawaii to the mainland.  This challenge can be overcome. 

Having sailed on the vessel in 1999 or 2000, I can answer some questions as well as put interested parties in touch with the owner's representative.  Wizard's owner also has two significant Alden's in the 50-65' range LOD and would like to place the Wizard in the hands of someone to finish the restoration as he downsizes his fleet. 

PM me or feel free to ask more questions on this thread.

Indeed!

Just noticed the script / font on this little tray actually says  "SY Queen Mab".   SY...?    Steam Yacht?

Being a reference to a fairy in Shakespeare play, there have been many Queen Mabs. 

The Herreshoff built schooner was two masted.

Hi Laurie,
I just picked up on this trail - It's been a long time on the system - while investigating the Queen Mab.  All because of a little tray that has been kicking around in our family for a while...  I have photos - attached.

Who knows if they belong to "your" Queen Mab, or the three mast behemoth that went before!

Do you recognise the tray?

Incidentally, I know that the Queen Mab that used to race with the WASP was built on the Clyde in Scotland in 1892, and registered as the Queen Mab, a Cutter!

Kind regards,

Robin

Hi Charles.  The registry shows you to be in Noank.  Can you confirm your email address?  I'll get you on our contact list.

You can email me directly at davechub@gmail.com

Always great to make another "S" contact!

I would like to participate in the upcoming 100th anniversary events with my Sboat Nightmare. I need information on sails (where to purchase) and any other information for the events.
